Pros: Really easy to use and the information is provided in a neat, easy-to-interpret and professional manner. The platform provides various ways to view and export reports. My favorite function is to export a farm report for a specific date to PDF. This provides an image and NDVI of the farm as a whole, and also each field's images individually. This report makes it real easy to identify problem areas on the farm and pin-point inspection zones. Other great functionality is the field reports on which the NDVI-curve is shown for each field on which the sowing and harvesting date is also marked. Cropio also provides crop estimates from early in the season which correlates very good with the actual yields obtained for each field. Cropio is truly a full-house platform for maintaining your field records and agronomic information. Information can easily be imported and exported in various file formats. The support is great and comparing it with other platforms I tried, it really is the best value for money in the market. I can truly recommend anyone to try Cropio and experience the future of farming.

Cons: I would really like to see Cropio to develop into a full farm management platform in the future. This will include inserting product prices and calculating farm and crop margins.

Overall: Detailed and up-to-date information for every field. Cropio provides accurate yield estimations, and provides detailed vegetation-maps on a regular basis (5-10 days). It enables you continually monitor your crop status and identify problem areas on your farm sooner. I can truly recommend everyone to try Cropio and experience the future of farming.

Pros: Simplicity, ease of use and the regular updates and improvements. It requires very little if any training to use and is incredibly intuitive.

Cons: Quality of the satellite images, but even higher quality ones add little value to our business at present.

Overall: Having reviewed a number of different FMS and Satellite imagery providers we decided to go with Cropio for it's ease of use. The interface continues to improve and become easier and easier to use, significantly increasing the usage rate in our company.
Being available in multiple countries and languages is something that makes it very appealing to us and easy to implement. The support and training provided by Cropio is fantastic and the their willingness to meet the customer needs is fantastic.
Having met with the company they appear to be incredibly innovative and refuse to stand still in this rapidly changing market. New features continue to be added to the platform that make it even more attractive for our company to use.
The value for money is fantastic as is the quality of the product.
I would happily recommend Cropio to anyone and have already recommended it to a number of people across Europe.

Recommendations to other buyers: Easy to use and you get soo much value for your money!

Comments: The most important moment for our company is that Cropio unites all the data for telematics and agronomy in one platform. It costs nothing comparing to other systems and gives you full control on the businesses. Cropio delivers accurate data and great for planification and monitoring. It also generates a great number of reports.
Customer support is amazing - the Cropio team is always ready to help. Developers add new functions, so system always improves.

Comments: pros

- i liked the daily history of ndvi thats very important, one can know that actions taken during the phenological stage are what making the difference.

- customer service was magnificent , everything we asked was answered even outside working hours , we are in another continent but always have your support

cons
-today many companies are using drones, i can tell you should be improved scouting use.
-one of the things that managers seek to know in agriculture is that activities are completed, backward and doing that better than using maps reflecting that,

Comments: Given the structure of our group, and with our projects being in different countries, Cropio is a very good ¿control tool¿ where we can have access to the Operations and overview/status of the farms in a timely manner. In addition, it is a very good tool for the farm management and crop team to input field data, generate reports and follow-up the operations.
Cropio is very user-friendly and Cropio team provides excellent customer support. We highly recommend it, especially for large scale agricultural projects.

We are expanding our coverage with Cropio for all the areas of our operations in the country and extend the system benefits all our customers to have access to what in our view will be the key to sustainability of agricultural production.
Cropio monitoring system is surely among the world's best in relation to this type of technology

Comments: I followed this last week CROPIO website and believe it is a tool with good potential for use primarily for field selection and monitoring of our producers through the NDVI images. Another important factor is the possibility that we follow the variation of moisture and soil temperature, facilitating the analysis of potential stresses that can compromise productivity. All these data need to validate our terms of production, climate and soil .
An important point, which would facilitate the use and certainly the possibility of cooperating own gain access to the tool, it would be the translation into Portuguese, making it easy to understand.
Another important issue: there is possibility of integration this tool to create maps for use in precision agriculture and may transfer this information to the GPS and programs serving to locate the points of collection of soil samples.

Comments: Agrinvest started its relationship with Cropio one year ago. We were looking for a complete solution to help us improve our field management and we found Cropio, that has a unique way to deal with agronomic information.

With Cropio we've had a second way to understand our farm data, one by our agronomic team directly in field and another by Cropio's vision, that synthesize all the informations in a platform user friendly and extremely easy to use and understand.

We're very happy and excited to see what Cropio brought to us.

Comments: Cropio is an unique software on the Romanian market, that combines in an intuitive interface important information related to various agricultural aspects related to farmland. The desktop version is successfully completed by the mobile version of the software. As a Cropio partener in Romania I had some difficulties in presenting Cropio to the Romanian farmers due to the fact that the market is not prepared yet for this kind of managing software, but things are moving fast in the agricultural domain and I am confident that Cropio will become a must-have tool for the romanian farmers.
Pros: reliable information, diversity of tools, intuitive interface, good mobility, very good customer support
Cons: unclearness about exact fees on the RO market

This system greatly increased the efficiency of work of all departments of the company.

Comments: The software is very simple to use, easy to navigate, many features that can be utilized for future growth and excellent customers service. Best customer service I have seen in this part of the world.
Some improvements that must be made are to integrate with the large gps players of the world, Trimble, Raven, Agleader, Starfire and a few others. They also need to come up with more data input fields for the seeding.
However they take suggestions very well and are prompt to reply to concerns or items you would like to see added to the software.
Great company to work with.

Comments: We used cropio this year to keep track of field records on our operation. It was very helpful in identifing irrigation issues like plugged nozzles so we could fix them immediately. The weekly satelite images helped to identify crop issues as well. The key function I liked was the electronic scouting forms that alllowed agronomists to input field observations. Overall the service was quite usefull and affordable

Comments: The dashboard is an effective platform to launch into any field to see further detail additionally the workflow panning is a very nice function to see all operations and delegation of site operations with % completed items.
The biggest benefit is being able to go back in history to view land details prior to acquiring the system.

Comments: For the operator, this product is very convenient because it automatically calculates the amount of work performed in a particular area. You can generate reports about the performance of a group of machines. Also, the program divides the length of time for utility work and downtime for the period. For the agronomist, in addition to NVDI images and vegetation data, there are additional tools such as a weather forecast, which provides meteorological data. Also it is possible to record the history of a field: from the record of data on fertilizer, to information about harvest in a particular area.

The program allows a service management team in the company to monitor the performance of their specialists. (For example: the head officer can always see if the terms, specified in the routing, deviates from the agronomist). It is also possible to record the history of mechanics servicing technology (MOT, repairs and .t.d).

The only thing that can be defined as negative is that the service is focused on the work of the group of experts. (Mechanics, operators, agronomists, weighers, etc.). So one person can not handle the whole spectrum of the product.

Comments: The most attractive part of this system is that it really can potentially reduce pesticide and nutrient use and assist in the correct application of irrigation thereby really reducing your costs.
Fields are easily checked and yields can be determined as well as giving a clear overview of the actual status of the farm or project.

Comments: The ability to combine under one roof our Field database, Field Records, Crop Inputs planning and application data, NDVI data and Telematics function; in a simple to use program that is available via "The Cloud" to all our key personnel on PC, tablet or smart phone ; has without doubt enable our business to jump a huge leap forward over the last three years.

The Cropio team have listened carefully to their customers, and have focused on providing a system that the customer wants, rather than on what the programmer thinks the customer wants. the result is a very easy to use program that brings an "order" to your planning , monitoring and recording of all farm operations and field database information; and most importantly is easy to use. The program continues to improve with now the usage of Seeds ,Fertilisers and Agrochemicals linked directly to the accounts program via an API , not only does this keep our accounts package completely up to date but it has immediately speeded up the information flow and dramatically reduced the paper work load and cut errors to a minimum.

If one was to highlight where improvements could be made it would be to now move on to look more closely at the reporting side. A huge amount of information is stored within the system and now time needs to allocated to building a set of report templates that are relevant to the business, be it benchmarking, machinery hours, field data etc. There is a huge reservoir of information that can be tapped !

In summary we are very pleased with the system, like a mobile phone you now wonder how you ever did without one ( I guess that remark is aimed at the over 45 's !! and we look forward to continuing our association with Cropio for many years to come.
